Technologies

Molecular diagnostics is growing rapidly due to the fact that the presence of food pathogens can be detected within 24 hrs. This has huge ramifications for the food industry where every second costs money and may save lives. Molecular diagnostic tests detect specific sequences in DNA or RNA that may or may not be associated with disease. Food Chain Laboratories uses PCR (Polymerase chain reaction) to detect and confirm the presence of the suspected pathogen.
